Chocolate, Almond And Carmel Slice – An Easy And Delicious Treat!

One of my BFF’s son is having a birthday party today, and I never like to go to an event empty handed, so yesterday I whipped one of my favourite slices. Chocolate and caramel are two of my flavour loves, so this slice ticks all the boxes!

You can even pretend it’s healthy – well it does have almonds and apricots in it – hehe πŸ™‚

      I used to have a tube of it in the fridge for sometimes adding to porridge, but that is too naughty so don’t anymore, but it was yummy to sneak a little bit when I felt like a sugar fix. πŸ™‚

    Mmmmm! I can taste them now. The apricots would be a wonderful addition and they wouldn’t last long at a party. Thanks for sharing a new treat option.

    Have you ever made them with different fruit, like cherries or apples?

      Have never tried with different fruit, but purely out of habit, their is no reason you could not change the fruit. I have made it once with walnuts and it was just as yummy. Actually walnuts and apples could be a good match. πŸ™‚
